A Brief Introduction

I hereby declare myself Kevin Liu, the Masterman student. My partners on this project about math imagery are Kevin Yang and Constance Lee. I hope that throughout the next nine weeks, we will work cooperatively and efficiently, to create the most intricate project we can. Along the way, I hope to comprehend an interesting subsection of mathematics.

The Topic

In this project, we will further pursue knowledge topic of epitrochoids. An epitrochoid is a roulette made from a circle going around another circle. However, the idea of epitrochoids can be further expanded upon. link to our page

Questions and Goals

What if a circle was to revolve around another shape, like a square or triangle?
